Robert Woods

British Army 7th Btn. Royal Norfolk Regiment

My father, Robert Woods, was a prisoner of war in Stalag XXA and Stalag XXB. He was captured at St Valerie 12/6/1940 and arrived Stalag XXA (2A) 11/7/1940 He was transferred to Stalag XXB on 4/4/1943. I have several photos of him and colleagues in the camps including two which you have up on your website which must have been posted by someone else, it shows him in a band. I also have a photo with a few addresses and names on the back (difficult to make out but I am trying to research them) I am keen to find out more about his part in the Battle of St Valerie and his time in prisoner of war camps. He was on the death march back away from the advancing Russian and American forces and I believe he was liberated by the Russians. He was in the Royal Norfolk 7th Battalion. If you know of anybody who might be able to shed more light on his time during the war I would be grateful to hear from you.
